I am a guitar enthusiast. I like designing guitars, but I have no experience with being a luthier, but I still want to get my designs out. Is there any platform I can promote my designs, like a company that would be willing to accept them, maybe even pay for the use of them?

Nothing comes to mind, but perhaps you should contact some guitar manufactures and send them examples of your designs. Perhaps send them a porfolio with your resume showing the design tools you can use. I have no idea which computer programs designers use, but I imagine some people here might know.

Good luck.

I don't know what kind of market there would be for something like this. I would entertain any ideas you might have, perhaps make a couple, but I can't say that I would be willing to pay for it. I would give you credit for the design though.

I think you might find that if anyone liked a particular design of yours they would just alter it slightly and call it there own. Kinda like nearly every guitar maker has a Les Paul look-a-like. Same with the strat, the V, the Explorer. I've done the same thing here.

If you're interested you can PM me here or email me.
